Philadelphia 76ers: Josh Richardson nearing return from hamstring injury

It’s remarkable how little the Philadelphia 76ers‘ starting five has played together through 20 games. Joel Embiid has missed time to rest, as has Al Horford. Ben Simmons injured his shoulder a couple weeks in. Josh Richardson has recently dealt with a hamstring issue.

The starting five has played 102 minutes together, with a sparkling 21.3 net rating to show for it. For comparison, the LA Clippers’ starting five — including Paul George, who missed the first 11 games, and load-managed Kawhi Leonard — has spent 80 minutes together.
